Device name in network


I am a newbie in Beagleboard world and linux world.
Is it possible to set a device name to beagle board, so I can access it with it’s name, like “” or “beagle.board”?

If you want to call a device by a name instead of IP address, the easiest way is to modify the HOSTS file on the machine called the BBB.
For windows, look in system32 -> drivers -> etc
For linux, look in /etc

I haven’t found hosts in Angstrom, is there any other place it is located?
